Florida Technical Death Metal legends Atheist will be releasing their first album in eight years this year through Agonia Records.
Band leader Kelly Shaefer comments;
“2018 will mark our 30th year of making records. Atheist will embark on a very important album with an important new label along with a great team behind us, including Extreme Management Group. I feel confident that together, and with their anticipated dedication to bringing Atheist to a new level, the band will be poised for a crushing, new record! We cannot wait to begin this new chapter.”
Atheist were one of the original bands to combine Technical Death Metal with fusion elements, a style that went on to influence such heavyweights as Pestilence and Cynic when they both went on to make there own interpretations of the genre.
